A certificate or diploma from the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland complements your professional and clinical experience. The duration of these can vary but typically a certificate is six months while a diploma takes approximately a year. All of our certificate and diploma programmes can be completed part-time making it easier to complete whilst working in a busy clinical environment.
As well as clinical certificates and diplomas, we offer certificates and diplomas in areas such as leadership and quality improvement. Consider and plan the next step in your career and professional development.
